If you’re a feature writer, or a writer who wants to try their hand at features, you’ve probably heard that big, high concept movies are in and indies are out. You want to write BLADE RUNNER, you want to write WONDER WOMAN, you want to write movies that are big and grand. And there’s nothing wrong with that, but, if you’re brand new to screenwriting or you’ve gotten the “this just needs more development” note, then you really should take a deep breath and write an indie.
Whether you fall in love with indies or not, everyone can become a better writer by writing something small and contained. Because in an indie, you can’t hide behind a lot of flash and spectacle. All you have are your characters, dialogue, sense of pacing, and structure to set your script apart from all the rest.
So, what do you say? Do you accept the challenge?
